One of the most debated topics is, where and how was the Earth we stand on created. As public education teaches us, we were formed through evolution and one day there was simply life on the planet, even though it is impossible to make something living from the nonliving. Even though science fails to back up evolution it often begins to cast doubt into the word of God, because it has become such a widely held world view. However, there are holes in this theory as I have stated above and that is why it is not only the spiritual but also logical thing to look towards the first chapter of Genesis. In Genesis 1:1, the very first sentence of the bible states “in the beginning God created the heavens and the Earth.” That is all the information that one truly needs to begin to understand the creation of the natural world.

...towards God. He will lead us in the right direction just as he has done for Abraham and many others. For even after Adam and Eve ate the fruit he did not abandon them.

Look towards the scripture and if the entirety of it seems too daunting, simply start with the book of Genesis for so many answers can be found in it. The scripture within Genesis supplies us with a way to interpret and know the natural word, human identity, human relationship, and civilization. When looking at the roots of each of these topics it becomes obvious how one may apply those lessons or learnings to everyday life. The overarching theme of each is to trust in God because his unwavering love will lead you in the right direction.

- In The Creation: An Appeal to save life on earth, E.O.
